Phage therapy for Florida corals?

Fact Sheet 2007-3065
Prepared in cooperation with Mote Marine Laboratory "Protect Our Reefs Program"



Coral disease is a major cause of reef decline in the Florida Keys. Bacterium has been defined as the most common pathogen (disease-causing organism). Although much is being done to catalog coral diseases, map their locations, determine the causes of disease, or measure the rates of coral demise, very little research has been directed toward actually preventing or eliminating the diseases affecting coral and coral reef decline.
